Transition metal-catalysed intermolecular reaction of allenes with oxygen nucleophiles: a perspective

Author affiliations

Abstract

Transition metal catalysed hydroalkoxylation of allenes has received much attention in recent years, and both the intra- and intermolecular versions have been reported. Gold(I) complexes are among the most active catalysts for these processes. This critical perspective article will cover the progress in this field, analysing the intermolecular metal-catalysed reaction of allenes using palladium, iridium, rhodium, ruthenium, gold and platinum, in the presence of alcohols, water or carboxylic acids, and the mechanistic implications of these processes depending on the metal used.
